Bible passage of the week......let there be blood.

If only priests still conducted the blood atonement ordered by god.....would make for some interesting Sunday mornings to say the least. Interesting how god considers childbirth to make the mother so immediately unclean that animal sacrafice is required. Ugh.


Leviticus 12:1-8


And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.


And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.


And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.


But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.


And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:


Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that hath born a male or a female.


And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

so this was immaculate conception* and virgin birth(all conceptions and births)?

this is so very sad. really it is.


*i know immaculate conception refers to MARY being conceived without sin by the way. i just used it because i hope most people misunderstand the term

The LORD hates women... AND their babies... especially if the babies are women. He's not crazy about lambs and birds either.

Why do you pick on Jews so much? This passage is from the Old Testament and Christians are not bound to these kinds of laws since the coming of Christ.

And FYI, the celebration of the eucharist IS the blood atonement these days. Jesus, "the lamb who was slain," took the place of the Passover lamb. We refer to it as the "unbloody sacrifice."

Not true, but why would it bother you? According to the NT, they are all going to burn for eternity.

Also not true. Or you would ignore the Ten Commandments. Or the words of a shifty magician...

Matthew 5:17-18 "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
